New Mobile Application Launched Alongside 18.3 Feature Expansion
AUSTIN, Texas, August 15, 2018 – E2open, the one place in the cloud to run your supply chain, today released its quarterly technology update that brings a slew of new features stressing its commitment to mobile connected supply management and better user experience for its solutions. With a growing populace dependent on billions of connected mobile devices, these enhancements allow E2open customers a fast and secure way to access critical supply chain data.
E2open’s mobile application empowers planners to track orders and inventory transactions and receive alerts anytime, anywhere. Mobile devices gather information in real-time and facilitate “in-the-moment” business decisions. Users can leverage work-offline and sync-later features when in remote locations without network coverage, allowing information and decisions to be seamlessly synchronized once they come back online.
“With this latest update we focused on streamlining decision making and improving the overall user experience,” said Michael Farlekas, president & chief executive officer of E2open. “Like the data in your supply chain, we know you are always on the move. These updates make navigation across applications seamless and ensure decisions are just a few taps away.”
As part of the improved navigation, the new Harmony Launchpad Header, with Unified Menu and Favorites, lets you access and navigate across E2open applications, agnostic of the app you are in.
Additional advances across the E2open product portfolio delivered as part of this quarterly update include:
Supply Planning and Response creates accurate feasible plans with the continued enhancement of Constraint Based Planning for Process Industries. Planners can balance conflicting objectives through feasible production plans that optimize capacity, materials and labor. Faster and holistic decision making simultaneously delivers improved inventory turns, on-time delivery capacity utilization, and reduced obsolete inventory write-offs.
Planners can group demand priorities into different aggregated bands allowing them to prioritize target stock for demands of one band versus due date of demands of another band, creating better demand priority visibility. Better management of priority variations simplifies the planning decision process and improves performance.
Demand Planning provides users flexibility to run scenarios for the past forecasting versions with diverse scenarios for better decision making. Analytics offer enhanced promotion cannibalization for better understanding of how promotions drive demand.
Harmony User Experience enhances Attach Rate Forecast. Handy for planners, the forecast engine generates finished and dependent component forecasts along with ratio in a time-phased manner.
Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) rolls out a robust forecast-netting engine to calculate unconsumed forecast based on actual orders and display in planning views. The data-driven approach ensures that the products reaching end of life are not over forecasted, providing better control on inventory management.
Channel Management enhancements include inventory reconciliation to help track, analyze, and identify and facilitate the resolution of discrepancies in the inventory reconciliation across all distribution channels. The insights facilitate faster revenue recognition, accurate partner incentive, as well as improved channel inventory planning.
